    Love the first two...how do you get such contrast on your B&Ws? If it's dodging and burning, what guidelines d0 you use (my attempts ususally look like cr@p).

    Lostprophet, love the avatar, are you a Collide fan?

    Another vote for #1 and #2. I love how you can see the sun rays in both and I really like the light on the cattails.:thumbup:

    Thanks everyone.
    Tips about B&W conversion.... well it's a matter of personal taste.

    I do it different every time, but usually it works with playing with individual colours curves and then monochroming via channel mixer between red and blue. Then dodging and burning if I feel the need.
    I have no set way of converting.

    I just the same as trying to replicate the effects of different filters in B&W photography.
    The sky in these shots look like they could have been taken using an orange filter.
    Burn and dodge are your friend aswell.
    When used properly.... anyway :D

    I'm actually starting to get good at burning and dodging in the darkroom aswell, so I guess thats giving me extra understanding.
